Brian,

If I have time I keep up with it all month adding stories shortly after they appear.  At the end of the month what is left is to do the editorial, lately pretty lame, and do the Table of Contents.  At the very last minute I add the last posts for the month and finalize the TOC, and publish it.  It was on the website last night, and here late this morning.

Ed
